Big Brother Naija All-Stars housemate, Ikechukwu Sunday Okonkwo, a.k.a Cross, has emerged the first finalist of the ongoing Season 8 of the reality TV show.
Cross, who is the current Head of House (HoH), purchased immunity with Moniepoint coins, on Sunday.
Moniepoint is the legal tender in the BBNaija House.
He bought Neo and Omashola’s Moniepoint coins for N3m and N1m, respectively. Pere and Alex also gave him their coins for free to enable him to purchase the immunity.
This means Cross would be immune from possible eviction in week 9 beginning next Sunday, which takes him to the final of the show automatically on Sunday, October 1, 2023.
However, Big brother announced that Moniepoint coins are no longer valid or legal tender in the House.
Henceforth, housemates who have unused coins would not be able to make purchases with them.
